Cuboid & RotateShape

How come Cuboid[] appears to be designed such that RotateShape doesn't
work on it? The following doesn't do any rotation:

RotateShape[
         Graphics3D[Cuboid [{0.1,1,1}]],
		Pi/4,0,0]

The following is a workaround:

RotateShape[
      AffineShape[Polyhedron[Cube],{0.1,1,1}],
                 Pi/4,0,0]

RotateShape looks for Polygon, Line, or Point objects to rotate, so
Cuboid must somehow not be made of those things. Is this correct? Is
there a reason that Cuboid[] is designed this way?
